CMA's awards contest is open until May 1

Wood Diamond Awards,

The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) announces that submissions are open for the 12th annual Wood Diamonds Awards program.

The awards were launched in 2010 to allow members to honor the work of their peers. The contest gave the organization an opportunity to promote excellence in the industry, and the winners could share these honors as part of their marketing efforts.

“The Wood Diamond Awards have given us a chance to see and showcase the amazing work of our members,” says CMA Executive Director Amanda Conger. “Our members don’t always get a chance to see each other’s finished work, and the added bonus is that the award-winning work can inspire other shops.”

The Wood Diamond Awards submission period runs from March 1 through May 1, and the fee for each project is $75. Visit to review submission requirements and access the entry form.

All judging is done anonymously by non-participating members. The winners will be announced at the Member Appreciation Reception during the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in August.
